Jesus, the Shining Light
Jesus came to be the Light of the world. Light came into this dark world when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Wonders of the Word of God
In the great battle today over the Word of God, the conflict comes down to this: is the Bible truly His Word?
Becoming a Salty Saint
Never before in recent history have we seen Christians held up to more open ridicule than in this day in which we live. The favorite sport today is Christian bashing in the media and academia. Why?
When Yardsticks Become Boomerangs
It seems natural to look at someone and make a decision about their nature or character. We all have our yardsticks, the measures we use to judge others. But Christ warns us to be very careful.
Don't Miss God's Best
Many people trust Christ for their eternal destination but not for strength to walk today. Do you know what we have in the Lord Jesus Christ?
A Battle for the Bible-A Fight for the Faith
We are now seeing two opposing world views locked in battle on the world stage. One, referred to as Orthodox, believes in traditional, revealed truths. The other, oftentimes referred to as Progressive, relies on individual experience.
Are you tired of games and hypocrisy? Our world is looking for reality. Let's examine what a false witness looks at and then the marks of a true Christian.
The Way Home
Second Samuel chapter eleven is one of the dark chapters in the Bible because it tells of the sin of a great man, King David. If you want a study of character, nobility, wisdom, courage, and devotion; you will not find a better man than David.
Too Blessed to Be Stressed
There's a missing link. How does a person stop worrying and be happy? Well it takes more than platitudes! For this, you really will have to dig deep, but here's a few points to ponder to help get you started.
The Prince of Peace
One of the wonderful names of our Lord is Prince of Peace. And Jesus is the key to peace - whether it's personal peace in your heart, domestic peace in your home, or eternal peace in heaven.
A Recipe for Joy
So, what is the secret of joy? Would you like to know more about this "secret" recipe?
First Things First
If you have difficulty living the Christian life, it's because your priorities are wrong. If your priorities are right, your life will be right.
The Power of Proper Priorities (Part One)
We all give our lives to something in hopes of finding happiness and fulfillment. But the Bible tells us that seeking God is the only means of finding what you're looking for.
The Battle for the Mind
We've all heard the saying, "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." There is a lot of truth in that statement. Satan is like a saboteur who is looking for an opportunity to tinker with our minds and our souls.
How to Pray for Friends and Influence People
Dr. A. C. Dixon, a fine expositor of the Word of God, said that when we depend upon organization, we get what organization can do. But when we depend upon prayer, we get what God can do.
How to Win the War with Worry
Worry is a serious problem. If you are looking, there's always something to worry about! Jesus warned in the Sermon on the Mount that worrying will distract and defeat us.
The Miracle Mile
Jesus calls us to not only do what is required, but to go the extra mile. How can a Christian learn the joy of the selfless, Christ-filled life in such a selfish world?
God's Design for Marriage
The Pharisees once asked Jesus if it was lawful for a man to put away his wife for any cause. The rabbis had been teaching all sorts of things - even one claiming that a man could divorce his wife if he didn't like her cooking!
The Lordship of Christ
If there were only three words we might be allowed to speak, those three words should be, "Jesus is Lord!"
The Real Thing
True success is not found in money or education. We live in a phony, plastic world and have been lied to or cheated at one time or another. But true success is found in serving the one true God.
Satan's Academy Award
There are so many talented people in Hollywood who are receiving praise just for pretending. But in my view, the greatest acting is not done in Hollywood but in churches.
Foundation for the Family
God has a plan for the family, and divorce isn't part of it. If we are to have strong people and a strong nation, we must first have strong families.
Winning the Battle for the Home
God has a plan for the family, but Satan has our homes under constant attack. A war has been waged on our homes, a war over moral purity and the sanctity of the home. God built the home before He even instituted government and before He built the church.
Developing a Clean Thought Life
Christ wants us not only to behave morally, but to have a clean thought life. It is possible to fight off temptation and develop a clean mind, even in an evil age.
It's Whats Inside That Counts
The Pharisees wanted to go through the motions of being religious, but Jesus said it's not the external things that are important, it's what's inside that counts.
The Secret of Fulfillment
You can know all the facts of history, but if you reject the central figure of history, your time has been wasted.
Bright Lights in a Dark World
In our last study, we explored the fact that Christians are to be the salt in the world. This time we will explore the view of Christians being light in darkness.
Pass the Salt
Christians are the salt of the earth, and Christ calls us to live salty lives so that we can make a difference in the world.
A Foundation for the Future
As we think about this New Year, perhaps you have considered some of these questions. How can I build my life on a true foundation? Just what is the true foundation? Where do I begin? How do I know that what I believe is right? These are difficult questions, but ones that must be considered and answered.
The Lost Christ
It's been my observation that people, rather than being drawn closer to Christ at Christmas, in a very real sense are drawn away from the Lord Jesus. It seems like, in the very midst of the celebration, we lose Jesus.
How to Have Fullness of Joy
A Christian without joy is a contradiction in terms. If you are right with God, you ought to have a continual, conspicuous, contagious joy. I want us to consider how to have fullness of joy.
God's Answer To Anger
Are you ever angry? Unless you have ice water in your blood, the answer is probably yes. This study will show how God's Word teaches us to deal with our anger.
God Will Finish What He Started in You
Years ago, I read the story of a young missionary wife who, with her husband, moved to another country. She looked at the dirty floor in their new house, promptly got a brush and pail, and got down on her hands and knees and began to scrub.
